Honda Ridgeline Reliability Rating

2023 Ridgeline Safety

Most trucks score exceptionally well in standard crash tests, and the Ridgeline manages to nab a nearly full house of five-star ratings from the NHTSA. In fact, the only test holding it back is a four-star rollover rating. The IIHS review of the Honda Ridgeline is impressive too, though it returned a rating of only Acceptable for the small overlap front: passenger side test and a Marginal score for the headlights. All other scores were Good.

2023 Ridgeline Key Safety Features

The Honda Safety Sensing suite is included on every new car from the automaker, and it manages to cover all the basics. This means that even the base trim gets forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, and a multi-angle rearview mirror. This is on top of the usual ABS, traction and stability control, and airbags, of which the Ridgeline has six. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is added on the RTL, while the RTL-E and Black Edition also get front and rear parking sensors and automatic high beams.

2023 Ridgeline Reliability

Honda automobiles generally score very well when it comes to reliability, and the Honda Ridgeline is no different. J.D. Power awards the truck an overall consumer rating of 80 out of 100, with the resale value being a high point. Quality and reliability are rated at 80/100 too. There have been no recalls issued for the 2022 or 2023 Honda Ridgeline, but there was a single issue for the 2021 model involving a seat belt retractor malfunction. In November 2022, the 2019 Ridgeline - along with certain older models - was recalled for a rearview camera that could fail. It's understood that this issue existed for years before the recall was issued, and many owners expressed frustration that the camera problem began after the warranty expired.

The warranty plan on a newly bought Honda is pretty standard, with three years/36,000 miles of limited coverage and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Roadside assistance is offered for the first three years/36,000 miles.
